Is Classic Porn Better?

I don’t know about you, but I am starting to get bored with porn…

Porn has become totally predictable:
Step 1 – Camera shows girl
Step 2 – Guy licks girl’s pussy and breasts
Step 3 – Girl sucks guy’s dick
Step 4 – Guy and girl fuck in a bunch of acrobatic positions for 20 minutes
Step 5 – Guy jerks himself to give a facial to the girl
Step 6 – Girl says goodbye to the camera

Unless the girl is ultra hot – I’m talking Asa Akira, Kristina Rose, Tori Black, or Katsumi hot – I begin to watch the movie and after a few minutes I lose my interest. Often my erection goes with it…

Thanks Kristina for finding my Krusty clown  – and my erection!

Now, I had found that classic porn – those movies filmed when I was still a kid – keeps my attention. In those movies, the women were hot, natural (no silicone balloons or tattoos), and besides some exceptions like John Holmes and Ron Jeremy, most of the guys had normal penises. Compare that to today’s porn where you have tons of silicone, steroids, and breasts and penises that are two steps away from genetic mutations.

Not only the people were more natural, but the movies were MOVIES. They were not a collection of scenes, but movies with some sort of a plot and sex scenes with natural length. The sex scenes did not last for 25 minutes, they were 10 minutes before the guy was ejaculating a NORMAL quantity of semen, not the unnatural liters of cum we see in today’s movies.

They were also creative. Just watch pornographic masterpieces like Behind the Green Door (1972), Deep Throat (1972), Debbie Does Dallas (1980) or one of my favorites, Taboo (1980).  They had simplistic plots, but often just the plot was kinky: a woman abducted and forced to have sex with a succession of strangers on a stage (Green Door), a woman who can only achieve orgasm while sucking dick (Deep Throat), or a mature woman who ends having sex with her adult son after a bitter divorce (Taboo). I recently watched Behind the Green Door and got the strongest erection I had in months while just watching porn. Once the movie centered on the abducted woman (Marilyn Chambers), the sensuality and hardcore action did not stop. Other movies like Emmanuelle (1974) were closer to softcore, but they were erotic enough to produce erections and put your girl on the mood. The movies were so good that for a few years even the New York Times reviewed porn films of the era (1972-1975).

  1. Totally agree with you with slight consideration:
    1. they all are very ‘bushy’ compare to now
    2. not enough pussy close up which makes you want more
    3. of course they not HD quality

  2. I’m torn. I like them better in some respects. I think the photography is often better, and the sex is more realistic and less “checklist” sex, where it looks like the director had a checklist of positions and checks each one off for each scene. I also like that most actresses look more natural (including bush). I’m not a fan of the “I divide my free time between the gym and tattoo parlor” look.

    On the other hand, I do prefer the very busty (albiet natural), and the Kay Parkers/Christy Canyons are fewer and farther between in classic porn. And classic porn tends to stay centered on a few things–basic P-V sex, occasional anal, and lots of blow-jobs. Modern porn does seem to offer a little more breadth of things. I love female-solo scenes. It’s a common thing in modern porn, but I think it’s a relatively small number of scenes Christy Canyon did, and I think you can count Kay Parker’s solo scenes on one hand.

    But I love Taboo, in particular. Even with its flaws, it’s still one of the best porn features I’ve seen.

    1. I understand your torn feelings. There are things I really like about classic porn (natural-looking women, more natural sex positions) while I would like to see more variety on the scene types…

      On the other hand, we have to remember that the movies I mentioned were mostly from the 1970’s when the “ideal woman” was the Farrah Fawcett type. Big breasts became a fixture in porn by the late 1980’s, when porn was not shown in movie theaters, but in VHS and Beta tapes at homes.

      I don’t know how old are you, but during the 1970’s most sexual acts besides P-V sex were illegal in many states of the USA. Performing anal sex was a felony, so it was not shown in movies. In fact, most porn made before 2003 barely shows anal sex in great part due to these laws.

  3. Think I’m older than you are. 😉 Let’s say I remember seeing Star Trek (albiet very, very hazy memories) on its network run.

    I’d argue the Farrah Fawcett assertion. Lynda Carter’s poster was also extremely popular, and Raquel Welch was a superstar before them. Marilyn Monroe’s and Elizabeth Taylor’s big boobs were large parts of their fame. And Jane Russell was probably the first actress to cash in on great cleavage, circa 1940.

    But that said, the big boobed porn stars of the 70s like Uschi Digard, Kitten Natividad, etc., were mostly doing lesbian or softcore loops for bachelor parties. Kay Parker mostly had the field to herself in “mainstream” porn for awhile.

    Hadn’t thought of the anal issue. Now that I think of it, the anal scenes from that era that I can remember are all foreign films.

    1. Damn, Saint C… we are a pair of dinosaurs! (LOL)

      You are completely right on the fact that women with big breasts and dangerous curves had been sex symbols in all ages. I used Farrah Fawcett as an example of the body type mostly found on the movies I mentioned. Most of the performers on the classic movies I listed had bodies similar to FF – thin, not too curvy, and small to mid size breasts.

      Lynda Carter came to fame after 1975 and one of the reasons she became famous were her curves in that Wonder Woman costume – which few actresses could fill the way she did :).

      Monroe, Taylor, Welch, Bardot, and Loren (how could you forget Sofia!) became sex symbols during the 1950’s and 1960’s when the “ideal” woman was the curvy pin-up type with large, round breasts and pronounced hips…

      Regardless of the size, a woman shows a nice cleavage and we are doomed!

    2. That study is one of those things I have to sit down to read! I browsed it and it is really interesting…

      One of the things the author of the study concedes is that there is an stereotype of the female porn star – big breasted blonde – fueled by the images of the most known porn stars. Today’s porn maybe is not dominated by big breasts… but there is a lot of fake breasts around. Performers like Sasha Grey, Kristina Rose,Stoya, and Tori Black are bringing back the natural breast look.

      There are many companies doing scenes emulating the look and feel of the 1970’s, with more eroticism than hardcore. X-art, Joymii, and Hegre-Art make great erotic hardcore videos and many are directed by women.
